ABOUT THIS NECKLACE

There's a lot going on in this fabulous, exquisitely detailed Victorian jewel dating from the mid-19th century. Expertly hand fabricated in warmly burnished 18K yellow gold, the lavalière radiates all around the fanciful circular design with gorgeous rich crystalline red cushion-cut rubies--alternating with bright old mine-cut diamonds--that orbit a central lozenge-shaped ruby. The center ruby, framed by a quatrefoil design glittering with tiny rose-cut diamonds, is embellished at its cardinal points with four sizable old mine-cuts. An outer frame and the crown motif bail both twinkle with rose-cuts, while a trio of diamond-topped, lustrous white, natural saltwater pearl drops dance below. A ravishing, refined, and exemplary antique wearable collectable. Also wearable as a brooch. Total diamond weight - 2.60 carats, total ruby weight - 2.65 carats. Natural pearls bear a GIA report. Platinum chain measures 18 inches.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
